I Really Laughed

While the term IRL generally means "in real life" in recent years, when combined with LOL the term has grown traction as an abbreviation or shorthand text-speak for "I really laughed". As the phrase 'LOL' -- a term once used to denote actual laughter -- has become overused and utilized in instances where no actual laughter has occurred, IRL is now being used to denote real laughter so as to let the other person know they actually found it funny.
John: that's when I told her I was gay.

Jane: LOL, irl.

Indy Racing League, now the premier racing series, it features cars that are more affordable, and Unlike CART the IRL mainly runs in the United States, with 1 race overseas in Japan. Thus they can have more races as opposed to the expense of transporting cars overseas.
NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, is also an IRL Champion.

Slang for "I am," when the speaker is intending to be funny by making fun of themselves with intentionally bad grammar. See also i r. May also be used as "url" when referring to someone else, meaning, "you are."

Originating from chat rooms and flash videos, people who watch them inevitably end up using them in thier RL conversations.

When pronouncing, "eye-are-el." As if the "el" were adding a bit of spanglish in the mix.
"lol, irl noob! ima get shot in teh face!"
"irl ninja"
"url stupid"
